Permaul & Eam Chendru Executors to the Estate of Poncaia Kistna Dec d . 
Plaintiffs. 

Against 

JOINTEE EAMADOO Dft. 

Ete Contra. 

The Plaintiffs Permaul & Eam Chendru having filed their Bill of Complaint in 
this Hble Court against Jointee Eamadoo praying payment of a Bond under his 
hand due to the Estate of Poncaia Kistna Dec d . The Dft. appeared thereto and 
putt in his answer and among other things sett forth therein That he never applyed 
to Poncaia Kistna for the Loan of any sum or sums of money Or that he ever 
Eeceived a Valuable consideration account said Bond in dispute but being threatned 
& harrassed by Permaul for a Debt pretended to be due to him from one Shaik 
Balloo who he then served the said Permaul placed peons over him, Whereupon 
he made application to Poncaia Kstna requesting him to stand his Friend Accord- 
ingly he the said Poncaia Kistna proposed That he the said Jointee Eamadoo 
should deliver up to him the Bill of sale of his House as also all his gold & silver 
Joj t s & jewells and that so soon as he had compromised matters w*. Permaul he 
would return them back- again and in the Interim sent Eam Chendru privately to 
his House w th . a Mortgage Bond ready drawn up to w * 1 . he thereto signed his 
Name. 

That the said Permaul some time afterw*. prosecuted the said Jointee Eamadoo 
in the Choultry Court and Caused him to be there Imprisoned for said Debt on 
w ch . there arose very hot words between the said Permaul and Poncaia Kistna 
whereupon he the said J. Eamadoo was soon after Eeleased. 

That upon his Eeleasement he went and Demanded the Mortgage Bond & joys 
of Poncaia Kistna w*. then promised to return (well knowing no valuable consi-, 
deration had been paid for the same) and accordingly Eam Chendru his then cash 
keeper to deliver up the same but he delayed the so doing till at last Poncaia Kistna 
departed this Life. 

That the said Permaul being appointed one of the Executors to the Estate of 
Poncaia Kistna Dec d . he thereupon sold his the said J. Eamadoo' s House at a 
private auction, but upon complaint being made to Hugh Naish Esq r . the then 
Mayor he putt a stop to said sale as contrary to the custom and practice of this place. 
This is the substance of Jointee Eamadoo's answer to the Bill of Complaint of 
Permaul & Eam Chendru upon the filing of w^. in this Court He Exhibited at y e . 
same time a Cross Bill against the said Permaul & Eam Chendru praying that they 
might be summoned In order to discover whether the severall allegation he sett 
forth in his answer to their Bill of Comp*. were not just & true, that the said Permaul 
& Eam Chendru accordingly appeared & putt in their answer denying the same, 
but as the said Perumal & Earn Chendru had only made Oath to the truth thereof 
by Mint & Water he the said Jointee Eamadoo moved the Court That they might 
Eeattest the truth of said answer at Triplicane Pagoda w * 1 . was Ordered accord- 
ingly. It appearing from y 6 . aforegoing that it was thro the Enmity and ill usage 
of Permaul that Jointee Eamadoo was Induced to make out the Bond in suite as 
well as to make over his House and jewells to Poncaia Kistna under colour whereof 
[...] P. Kistna was to skreen jointee Eamadoo from the Eesentment of Permaul 
That it also appeared Eam Chendru as servant to Poncaia Kistna was personally 
Employed in Beceiving the Jewells & Bond in suite of Jointee Eamadoo and that 
the Bill of Jointee Eamadoo's being only a Bill of discovery It was therefore the 
more necessary the answer should be dd into Court in the most solemn manner as 
the only method of obtaining relief to Jointee Eamadoo and to quell and supercede 
the Enmity that might still be supposed to subsist in the person of Permaul as well 
as in his private capacity as Executor to the Estate of Poncaia Kistna Dec d . There- 
fore a bare answer by Mint and Water the more justly Exceptionable especially as 
One of the parties hath already sworn in the affirmative. 



Mayor's Court Minutes, 1736-37

That the said Permaul & Earn Chendru having been often times called upon 
to go to the Pagoda to Eeattest the truth of their Answer Always delayed and 
Evaded the same and the Court being made acquainted therewith Ordered that 
they should be summoned to attend this Court In order to know the reason thereof. 
That the said Perumal & Earn Chendru attending this day agreable to said order of 
Court were made acquainted of the consequences that would attend a refusall, but 
the said Permaul & Earn Chendru still persisting in disobedience to v°. Order of 
this Court giving no other reason than a base pretence of their Cast. 

Tt was therefore unanimously agreed and this Court doth accordingly order 
that the said Permaul & Earn Chendru do stand committed for contempt In refusing 
to obey the Order of this Court.
